Jack has changed greatly, over the course of William Golding’s novel, Lord of the Flies. Crashing onto an island without adults and having to survive put a strain on all of the boys, but Jack’s personality altered the most due to this experience. He went from living as an ambitious choir boy, to being a vicious, brutal, beast. Many things changed Jack on the island, but most of all, he created the monster he became. Jack lost his sanity and civility and this changed him in more ways than imaginable.
Simon, being one of the wiset boys, said, “Maybe there is a beast...maybe it’s only us…” (Chapter 5, page 80). Some boys believe that there is a wild beast roaming about and others think that it is nonsense. The boys are beginning to split up and divide themselves over the thought of a silly creature when in reality, they should be packing together. A dead parachutist lands on the island, stuck in the rocks and trees and the boys mistake it for the beast. The boys have officially decided that continuing hunting on the island is better than trying to get off the island which makes Ralph very angry.
He deciphers a way to tell the readers that as human beings, there are just as many ways to lose power as there are to gain it. Piggy is the main source of this information, and through his past, and the ways he acts, he somehow manages to show the readers the significance of how, through our personalities and things we can’t help, we lose so much power. Many books and novels in this world focus on the things that help us gain power and leadership, but the fact that Golding did the opposite, makes this book stand out more than the others. For the boys on the island, power is a big struggle; there are always fights over who gets to speak and who gets to be in charge and make all of the major decision. Through these fights and through these arguments, William Golding shows that power is a hard thing to grasp and it is something that is even harder to maintain.
Frederick lay in a lush field, wild yellow flowers the size of pennies shown and green grass scraped the overweight piece of meat he was encased in. His hive, or what was left of it, was squished beneath his back. Horridly, Frederick realized, “If the hive is
Sam and Eric were the ones to spot the beast and “They became motionless, gripped in each other’s arms, four unwinking eyes aimed and two mouths open.” (Golding 107). The beast from the air is truly a man, but the schizophrenia of the kids motivates them to believe that the adult, who represents civilization is truly a beast, which is quite ironic. Fear inside the kids had become much worse day by day, till they finally recognized a beacon of hope as its opposite, fear. This shows the kids slow, but steady decline from
In the book Jack becomes more powerful as the book goes on, showing how the civilization of the children is slowly drifting away as they become savages to one another. Killing and feasting for kicks by Jack’s ruley orders. When Jack has a drive for power he doesn’t let anything get between him and it. He plays the role of a dictator, but doesn't want to play by the rules, everything that makes up a narcissistic ruler. In Lord of the Flies Jack plays a huge role in every aspect of the book symbolizing evil and
William Golding’s book “Lord of the Flies” represents man’s struggle with authority, by creating a variety of characters with different points of view he is able to portray what happens when there is no one around to enforce the “law of the land”; Ralph is one of these characters, he represents a civil society with rules and laws to follow, he is intelligent and has more common sense than most of the group knowing that by building a shelter and starting a fire they would increase their chances of being rescued. In the end the group of boys turn on him (except for Piggy and Simon who both die in brutal ways) and it becomes fight or flight for Ralph as he is now alone on the island before ultimately running into the soldier.
Ralph is not against Jack, nor does he want to fight with him for the chief position, but ambition and violence overtakes Jack, and he turns into a dangerous savage. The shift in power in Lord of the Flies is comparable to many other usurps in history, and is one of many examples of how Lord of the Flies is about more than just a group of young boys stranded on an
Witness behavior had a large effect on the actions of the boy in the novel, Lord of the Flies by William Golding. There are many instances throughout the book that lead to the findings of John Darley and Bibb Latane experiments. For example, when all the boys choose Piggy as their target, that was social influence pushing them into becoming a bystander. Many of the situations the boys face are impacted by social influence or diffusion of responsibility. It is through these effects that the boys change, and react in ways they never would have, if not for the influence and diffusion around them .
Just like the flies are allured towards the pig head, the boys are allured towards the evil. This might be the reason why the book is titled “Lord of the Flies”. When the boys get rescued there is an irony in the way the officer reacts to the boys’ savagery. He shows his disgust by saying, “I should have thought that a pack of British boys - you’re all British aren’t you? - would have been able to put up a better show than that - I mean-“ .

Jack’s face was white under the freckles. He noticed that he still held the knife aloft and brought his arm down replacing the blade in the sheath. Then they all three laughed ashamedly and began to climb back to the track. “I was choosing a place,” said Jack. “I was just waiting for a moment to decide where to stab him.” as you can see, Jack was hesitated to kill the pig because he had never killed any living creature.
